Whilst the origin of this unusual name, along with Bweengduff, is unclear, they are almost certainly related to the nearby settlement of Bweeng (Ir. Na Boinn) and the townlands of Beennamweel East and West. One possibility is that Boinn is a corruption of Ir. muing, ‘rushy area’, and this explanation would fit well with its application to an upland areas of moderate height in Bweeng Little and Bweengduff.   Bweengduff is the 871st highest place in Ireland. Bweengduff is the most easterly summit in the Boggeragh Mountains area.

easy hill close to cork
by petercrowley  24 Aug 2013
my first hill was an easy one, actually cycled up to it before i realised it was high point. a good starter, hard core road all the way to the top. lots of masts at the top but a short trip across to bweeng little will give you better scenery.
